Default Saturated fat and cardiovascular disease

Saturated fat and cardiovascular disease: The discrepancy between the scientific literature and dietary advice
Full text free online at link.
Given the large social impact of dietary advice, it is important that the advice have a solid scientific basis.
Evidence-based dietary advice should be built on results from all studies available, according to a given methodology.
Conclusions should be a valid representation of the summarized results.
The association between saturated fat intake and cardiovascular disease was examined.
Results from three reports of leading U.S. and European advisory committees were compared with results as they were presented in the articles referred to.
Findings were put into perspective with results not included in these reports.
Different lines of evidence were included in the different reports.
No overlap whatsoever was found in the articles included.
Most results from the scientific literature were lacking for most different lines of evidence in all reports.
All three reports included the effect of saturated fat on low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in the evidence linking saturated fat to cardiovascular disease, but the effect on high-density lipoprotein cholesterol was systematically ignored.
Both U.S. reports failed to correctly describe the results from the prospective studies.
Results and conclusions about saturated fat intake in relation to cardiovascular disease, from leading advisory committees, do not reflect the available scientific literature.
I know this isn't news for people who have been following the topic of saturated fat but it's nice to see Peer Reviewed Journals actually publishing this.

Dr. Atkins said cardiovascular disease is from transfats, sugar and excessive carb consumption and nutrient deficiencies of the B vitamins.

I certainly was shocked to learn that saturated fat has been wrongly accused. It's maddening that the "powers that be" advertise and spread this propaganda. We've got to keep sharing the truth so people can regain their health.
